Two robbery suspects are on the run after an Oakville convenience store was held up at knifepoint.
That’s when a pair of masked males entered the Hasty Market at 2828 Kingsway Dr., approaching the employee behind the counter.
One of the suspects was armed with a small knife, Halton police allege, and the duo demanded cash, cigarettes and cigars.
The employee complied and they made off with cash and various cartons of cigarettes.
